Jodorowsky’s Dune (2013)

Directed By – Frank Pavich

Cinematography By – David Cavallo

Starring Alejandro Jodorowsky

88 min.

Jodorowsky’s Dune tells the story of “the greatest movie never made”. And while this is a bold statement, the 88 minute documentary presents substantial evidence to support the claim. Of course all we have are pre-production feats; inspired storyboards, a magnificent art department, an all-star cast (Salvador Dali, Orson Welles, David Carradine, Mick Jagger, etc.), a son who spent 2 years of intensive physical training for his role, and Pink Floyd doing some of the score.

But what filmmaking comes down to is actually making the film and who knows the obstacles that would have come into play during the production of this movie.

Ultimately, I like to think Jodorowsky’s Dune (the hypothetical movie, not this documentary) is indeed “the greatest movie never made” but unfortunately for us all, it’s a statement that will never be proven.

God Bless America
